Re: “Musician Eric Maier Reflects on His Vandalism Crime and the Album It Inspired

Charlie, thanks. Yeah, I understand the view that there should be more diversity in the mural, and support it. I do think that some of the outrage and anger over the mural is misplaced. I think it would be a different situation if Vermont was a state with a lot of diversity, and yet the mural was still mostly-white. (Also, please disregard my poor white male comment, it wasnt necessary. I was just annoyed at his all this pain and fear comment over graffiti that I dont think was needed in the first place.)

Re: “Musician Eric Maier Reflects on His Vandalism Crime and the Album It Inspired

Just read this article after hearing so much about it. The main takeaway I got is that Maier is unbelievably immature and irrational. I cant believe this dude is 30+.

He said, People call it the 'white supremacist mural,' and people get [upset]...There's hundreds of people on there, and almost all of them are white. Yes, and you also dont need to be a brain surgeon to know that this is the second whitest state in the U.S. Yes, I agree that the mural could have included Native Americans. But the fact that a mural is mostly-white in the second whitest state in the country should also not exactly cause surprise. (Did Meier pass out in shock upon seeing it for the first time? Did he need to lie down and be fanned?)

Regarding his first graffiti of the wall, he says, I was like, I went through all this emotional pain and fear, and no one even saw it. Oh no? Boo hoo? Poor white man, experiencing all this emotional pain and fear for graffitiing a wall there was no need to even graffiti in the first place? (Continued)

Of the artist, he wrote, He got a bunch of money, and I don't feel that bad for him." That doesnt even make any sense. Whether an artist was paid well or not paid well should have nothing to do with his decision deface his/her art. (So if the artist was paid poorly, he wouldnt have defaced it? What?)

And lastly, the most bizarre thing of all is that his graffiti wasnt even necessary. The city and citizens were already having productive discussions about the mural and the lack of diversity. There was no point to Maiers graffiti in the first place. His protest didnt actually change anything. Its like he decided to commit a pointless crime benefitting no one so that he could personally feel more woke which is really immature. I would have more respect for him if he had taken a stand on a social issue needing attention and which would have actually resulted in a positive change in the community. Instead, the Burlington Community Justice Center has to educate this 30+ year old man on things he should have already known in the first place.
